i have an ebony pickguard (abreviated) and was thinking of trying my hand at inlaying. I was doodling some stuff out but it all looks silly, what whould look classy and intersesting while maintaing a fairly simple inlay design? I appreciate all suggestions and pictures.

Check out the art section of bookstores, especially those with large collections of used books. You can sometimes find books of designs based on some tradition, such as celtic, art nouveau, etc. Lots of good ideas in these old sources.
